AlliraProf_1Thanks to funding from the Qld Government, All members are invited to our CAPS girls session on this Wednesday night.  Special guest presenter is Allira Rogers, Sport & Exercise Psychologist.

  • Date:  This Wednesday 27 July 2016
  • Time:  6pm-7pm
  • Venue:  WDNA Club house
  • Topic:  Keeping our focus, staying strong under pressure; and handling disappointment in netball.

Come along it should be a great session!

RULE OF THE WEEK:

After watching that great match by the Firebirds on Monday night we thought we would stick with the Contact Rule.

images-3Anyone wonder why sometimes it appears an attacking player runs straight through their defence and then the Attack is given the penalty pass?

More often then not it is the defence ‘moving into a players space’:

  • 12.2.1
  • Moving into Player’s Space
  • A player causes contact by:
    • (i) Landing in a place already occupied by an opponent before the movement began
    • (ii) Moving into the path of an opponent who is committed to a particular landing space

 

WET WEATHER GAMES CANCELLED

At the recent WDNA Delegates meeting, Clubs voted to NOT replay the wet weather games which were scheduled for this SUNDAY.

NUTRITION SESSION TONIGHT

  • Date:  Wednesday 20 July 2016
  • Time:  6pm-7pm
  • Venue:  WDNA Club House
  • Topic:  Kerry will be talking to us about how to fit a healthy lifestyle while juggling school, work and netball

WE’RE BACK …

Teal JumpWell the excitement is building for our first game back after the break.

 UMPIRE APPRECIATION DAY

This week 16 July is Umpire Appreciation Day. As we always should please take the time to thank your umpires. They are an integral part of the game! Have a great day Rangers Team White!

imagesRULE OF THE WEEK:

Thought we would throw some light on a much-discussed rule – 12. CONTACT. “What is crossing the line when it comes to contact?”

  • 12.2.2 Inevitable Contact
  • Player/s, whether moving or stationary, may not position so closely to an opponent that this player is unable to move without contacting.

So girls get off the body when defending and your penalty count will thank you.
